My husband and I enjoyed a splendid two nights at the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo. We did not know what to expect of Taormina, but were bowled over by its charm as soon as we hit the cobblestone streets leading to the Timeo. Upon arrival at the parking lot, we were whisked up by golf cart to the hotel. Our... More

This hotel is not only the best hotel in Taormina, but in all of Sicily, and possibly in all of Italy!! The staff are very helpful, and go above and beyond to go out of their way for you.

Forgive me for this late appraisal, but I thought I must still write briefly about such a lovely stay last year. Firstly, I take my hat off to all the restaurant staff, who were superb.

This is a fabulous hotel in a superb location overlooking the sea with Mt Etna in the background. The staff are excellent and really make you feel welcome. We stayed 7 nights in the main building.
